Australia will provide more than $21 million to UNDP this year to support our work around the world

Canberra, Australia — Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop met today United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Administrator Helen Clark to discuss how Australia and UNDP can further collaborate to reduce poverty, empower women and build stronger democratic institutions.

They also discussed the humanitarian toll being exacted by ISIL, the civil war in Syria and Iraq and what more the international community can do to assist, and the international response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

Australia will provide more than $21 million to UNDP this year to support our work around the world.

Australia and UNDP are long-standing partners, working together to support elections in Solomon Islands and Fiji, tackle gender-based violence in Papua New Guinea and to support peace and reconciliation in Bougainville.

The Australian government praised UNDP for playing a key role in the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals and highlighted that part of the budget used in their implementation is spent in Australia’s region.
